Australian Musical Theatre in the 21st Century

Summary

My research is looking at the relationship between musical theatre and national identity in the Australian context. I am analysing a number of recent Australian musical theatre productions to illuminate how nation is represented in these works. In doing so, I am developing a hybrid mode of analysis that can adequately account for the inherent interdisciplinarity of the form.
